Worldwide phenomenon Cirque de la Symphonie returns for ESO’s annual fundraising Gala event

Celebrate the ESO’s 2010-2011 season with the spectacle of Cirque

Tuesday, October 5th, 2010 – 7:30pm

Edmonton, ABYour Edmonton Symphony Orchestra (ESO) is thrilled to bring back, by popular demand, an astounding, jaw-dropping, high-wire production to the Francis Winspear Centre for Music for its 2010-2011 season fundraising Gala. On Tuesday, October 5th, daredevil artist-athletes will demonstrate their astonishing talents as Music Director William Eddins conducts the orchestra through a dynamic program of classical and contemporary music.

Having performed to three sold-out houses during the ESO’s 2008-2009 performance season, fresh faces join your favourite Cirque stars for an astounding performance with a new twist. Cirque de la Symphonie has promised a truly spectacular evening, unlike anything they have previously produced in North America. Their amazing troupe of aerial flyers, contortionists, jugglers, and balancers, will demonstrate astounding feats of artistry and strength both on and above the stage with their choreographed routines to memorable pieces by Bach, Bizet, Tchaikovsky, Saint-Saëns, and more.

Marvel over the magic of Cirque and experience the imaginative synergy of athleticism and musicality in this illuminating collaboration, all in support of your ESO.
